    When done properly, this is a great way of wrapping up a Trust Sequence building session. All members of the team need to feel comfortable and capable of participating in this activity as there is a level of physical and emotional exertion to this activity.

    And depending on the participant, it can be quite a relaxing activity for some while challenging for others, so it is very important that communication and trust is maintained.

    If you still have time, continuing on with the Trust Wave or Slice and Dice activities or a thorough reflection on the activity would be a great way to conclude the session.

    It is one of those sequences that demonstrates the importance of selecting the most suitable activity based on where your group is physically and emotionally at the time and that one doesn’t need to feel stuck to a program. Sometimes doing something less or slightly different that matches what the group needs at the time is much more beneficial when properly framed than pushing though with what was planned.

      That’s right David, as an activity in which heightens the level of risk, a carefully guided sequence of activities is critical.
